Re: sapdba unable to get oracle block size;

hi,


did you try to enter the correct SYSTEM password as requested? Did this work?
Did you verify the SYSTEM password with sqlplus?

You moved SAP & Oracle to another server. Did you edit the SQLNET configuration? tnsnames & listener?

If you backup program is a client program you must re-define the host name in tnsnames.ora file in client pc. You can do that also with "SQL*Net Easy Configuration"...

Check SAP Note = 421085 and if needed search the notes database at SAPNET.
